About Dr Martens Flora Boots
The Dr. Martens boots started life as an alteration to standard-issue boots by doctor Klaus Martens. After being injured in the war, he designed a new pair to aid his recuperation. By 1952, sales had grown hugely,so a new factory was opened and the first boots appeared in the UK in 1960. Since then they?ve grown in popularity and are now available in a wide range of colours, patterns and styles.
The Flora boot by Dr Martens is a slight deviation from the usual style; rather than fastening with the usual laces, they?re designed around the classic Chelsea boot. Part of the Kensington collection, they feature all the usual elements of Dr Martens design, but with a more simple finish; the leather upper is highly durable, and has a smooth and polished finish. With a pin-dot lining and a pull tag on the back of the boot, the Flora is a design classic which manages to be as practical as it is stylish.
Like all Dr Martens boots, the Flora is made to be as durable as possible, and with a tough and long-lasting finish. A Goodyear welted product, the Flora features both an upper and lower sole, which are heat sealed together for added resilience, other footwear brands often use glue alone to join them together. Including the original air-cushioned sole that Dr Martens have become famous for. The Flora is not only timelessly stylish, but also comfortable, slip resistant and resistant to oil and fat.
